Prep Baseball Report of NC

With the summer of 2023 in the books it is time for updates to the PBR Class Rankings. Our final update comes with the 2026 Class.


After a summer of tracking players progress the North Carolina 2026 Class has been updated and expanded to 100 Players. The 2026 Class is shaping up to be another loaded class at the top with several players in the National Rankings and it has depth that should only get deeper as players progress and more players are identified. It is still very early in the process with these young players and we look forward to watching this class grow and develop in the coming years.  Scroll down to see the Top 10 and follow the link to see the Top 100.
